  • Built-in 15 KV ESD protection for all serial signals
  • Easy IP address configuration with LCD panel
  • Choice of configuration methods: Web console, Telnet console, and Windows utility
  • Versatile socket operation modes, including TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP, and Real COM
  • SNMP MIB-II for network management
  • Supports Moxa's MXview industrial network management software via the MXview Plug-in



With the NPort® 5600 rackmount series, you not only protect your current hardware investment, but also allow for future network expansion by centralizing the management of your serial devices and distributing management hosts over the network.


Network Readiness for up to 16 Serial Devices

Only basic configuration is needed with the NPort® 5600 to connect up to 16 serial devices to an Ethernet network.


19-inch Rackmount Device Server

NPort® 5600 device servers come with Tx/Rx LEDs for the serial ports on the front panel, and 8 or 16 RJ45 serial port connectors on the rear panel. This makes the NPort® 5600 device servers suitable for standard 19-inch rack mounting, allowing you to simplify operational, maintenance, and administrative tasks.


Real COM/TTY Ports

Real COM/TTY drivers are provided to make the serial ports on the NPort® 5600 recognizable as Real COM ports by Windows, or Real TTY ports by Linux. In addition to supporting basic data transmission and reception, the NPort® drivers also support the RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, and DCD control signals.


LED Indicators to Ease Your Maintenance Tasks

The System LED, serial Tx/Rx LEDs, and Ethernet LEDs (located on the RJ45 connector) provide a great tool for basic maintenance tasks, and help engineers analyze problems in the field. The LEDs not only indicate current system and network status, but also help field engineers monitor the status of attached serial devices.


Adjustable Termination and Pull High/Low Resistors

When using termination resistors to prevent serial signal reflection, it is important to set the pull high/low resistors correctly so that the electrical signal is not corrupted. Since no set of resistor values is universally compatible for all environments, the NPort® 5600 has DIP switches on the bottom panel for setting the termination and pull high/low resistor values.
